"There's not much doubt in any of our minds that no complete idea springs fully formed from our brow,
needing only a handshake and a signature on the contract to send it off into the world to make twenty-five billion dollars.
The germ of the idea grows slowly..." - Walt Kelly

X as in...

Xanthic (adj) - yellowish in color
Xeric (adj) - dry or desert-like conditions; having very little moisture
Xenophobia (n) - fear or hatred toward foreigners, foreign countries, or anything else foreign

and what I no longer am,
just hands clasping
at air
and soft skin
airbrushed by aching fingers,
bloodied almost to purple,
a tinge of purpose,
whether or not we know it.

Playing on my iTunes at this very moment:
Yeasayer, Sunrise
